• When alt-J burst onto the scene in 2011 they were shrouded in an air of mystery, no one quite knowing who they were, their sound almost impossible to pin down and what was that name all about?

    Fast forward a year and their debut album ‘An Awesome Wave’ had won the Mercury Prize and the Ivor Novello for Best Album and their unique brand of folk inflected dub pop and soaring alt rock had set the world alight.

    Now, following the release of their third album ‘Relaxer’ the band are quite simply one of the biggest on the planet, headlining festivals across the globe and cracking the tough nut that is the united states, household names and national treasures to boot.

    No strangers to Bestival, the band have triumphed on every stage we’ve thrown them on in the UK, which is why we’ve invited them along to play at Bestival Bali for what promises to be a performance of epic proportions.
